Jonas, the main character in this story, lives in utopia where there is no hunger, no disease, no fear. He eagerly awaits the Ceremony of Twelve, when twelve-year-olds receive their assignments for their lifelong profession. He wonders if he will be assigned to be a "Nurturer" like his father or an important position in the Department of Justice like his mother. Jonas is surprised when he is selected as a "Receiver of Memories" one of the most highly honored positions in the community.

Re: The Giver
I think this a really good book. It can be a little confusing though. I really enjoyed the part when Jonas received the memory of christmas, that was so cool. I also liked when he recieved the memory of snow. In case anyone was wondering, there is a sequel, it is called Gathering Blue, i haven't read it but am going to soon.
